  title={The strongly coupled \$E\_8\times E\_8\$ heterotic string: Geometry \$\\&\$ Phenomenology},
  author={Sebastian Dumitru},
Working within the context of the strongly coupled $E_8\times E_8$ heterotic string theory, we analyze the $B-L$ MSSM, a realistic supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model, from both a low-energy phenomenology and high-energy string perspective. From a formal point of view, we examine different constructions of string vacua, which satisfy a series of theoretical and phenomenological constraints. Such vacua configurations are anomaly-free, preserve $N = 1$ SUSY at the compactification…
